The second bullet point states: "Schedule the deployment of Windows Server 2008 R2 using operating systems and WDS." What exactly does 'using operating systems' mean? Perhaps the sentence should be "Schedule the deployment of Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems using WDS."?

Note from the Author or Editor:
Page 17 Change "Schedule the deployment of Windows Server 2008 R2 using operating systems and WDS." to "Schedule the deployment of Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems using WDS."

Last sentence

The sentence "In addition, note that the site-local address still exists, but it is displayed as deprecated, as discussed earlier in this session" is incorrect. The addresses in Fig 2-5, to which this refers, are link-local addresses not site-local. Also, deprecated, in this instance, is in reference to the DAD state, i.e. Tentative, Preferred, Deprecated and Invalid, rather than the status of the site-local address type.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On reflection the sentence "In addition, note that the site-local address still exists, but it is displayed as deprecated, as discussed earlier in this session" at the end of page 55 isn't needed and might be confusing. Please delete this sentence.

Exercise 2, step 7

Step 7 of Exercise gives the following command: add address "isatap" fec0:0:0:fffe:0:5efe:10.10.0.50 However, if you have set up VAN-DC1 according to the instructions in the Appendix, its IPv4 address is 10.10.0.10, so the command should be: add address "isatap" fec0:0:0:fffe:0:5efe:10.10.0.10

Note from the Author or Editor:

2nd paragraph

PDF says "Microsoft applies Group Policy objects (GPOs) to groups rather than OUs because groups offer better flexibility for managing various sets of users." Lesson is talking about Password Settings Objects (PSOs) so I think this should say "Microsoft applies Password Settings Objects (PSOs) to groups rather than OUs because groups offer better flexibility for managing various sets of users." GPOs ARE applied to OUs.

Question nr. 3

In question nr. 3 on page 198 the body of the question says that we are trying to find policy settings with the term "Internet Settings" in the Comment field. However, the answer on page 657 indicates that option D ("In the Filter For Word(s) section, type Internet Explorer and select Exact.") is one of the correct options. In fact, in the answer it makes no mention of "Internet Settings" but mentions the term 'Internet Explorer' twice (in options B & D). So which term are we really trying to find?

Note from the Author or Editor:
In question 3 on page 198 please replace "internet Settings" with "Internet Explorer" Ian

On page 242, after the instructions on how to set up a collector-initiated subscription, the first paragraph starts with "You configure collector-initiated subscriptions..." Shouldn't it be "You configure computer-initiated subscriptions..."?

Note from the Author or Editor:
There is an error but it's not what the reader says. In the second sentence of the indicated paragraph 'computer-initiated' should be 'collector-initiated'. "In a source computer–initiated subscription, the computers that generate the events......" should read "In a source collector–initiated subscription, the computers that generate the events..."
